Most versatile location

Sailing on the Meuse, staying overnight in nature, eating out, taking a refreshing dip in natural water, the Bommelerwaard has it all!

Making a campfire and barbecuing

Bring your own barbecue and/or make your own campfire with gathered wood on one of the natural beaches.

Sleeping in nature or in a marina

In the sand and gravel pits, you can moor nicely and sleep in beautiful nature. In addition, there are fun ports in this area.

Experiencing true adventures

From the log cabin boat, you can already see many beautiful things. With the accompanying canoe, go on your own adventure in the pristine nature and meet unique animals!

A versatile sailing area with beautiful scenery and fun ports

Visitors rave about this prime location! You can tell from everything that the Bommelerwaard sailing area is inextricably linked to water. On this ‘island between the rivers’ you will find a dynamic nature reserve between the Meuse and Waal. By log cabin boat, the stretch of Meuse from Lith to Heusden is navigable. Your starting point? The point where Meuse and Waal just barely miss each other, the old fishing village of Heerewaarden!

Besides the Meuse, you will find a number of larger lakes and river branches. These were created from the 1960s onwards as the river’s flow direction was altered or sand and gravel was excavated. Today, lakes like the Alemse Gat, the Zandmeren and the Afgedamde Maas are an ideal place to swim with the whole family or moor at a beach and roast marshmallows over a campfire late into the night. Bring on those scary stories!

Make time to enjoy all the beauty nature has to offer here. At dusk, you often spot beavers, kingfishers and other ‘rare’ aquatic animals. Watch the sun slowly sink into the water and the sky take on the most amazing colours. The Bommelerwaard sailing area disconnects you from the everyday hustle and bustle. You don’t need an alarm clock here either. Nothing is better than waking up the next morning to the twittering of birds around you.

The Bommelerwaard in brief:

  • Many beautiful moorings in the countryside where you can stay quietly and sheltered
  • Lovely sandy beaches for swimming, fishing, sunbathing and barbecuing
  • Make a campfire on one of the natural beaches and roast marshmellows
  • Sailing on the Meuse yourself, there is always something to see!
  • Treat yourself and eat out at the Zandmeren or in the centre of Kerkdriel
  • Discover Heusden’s picturesque town port
  • Water fun for little guests in the most beautiful playground: the Neswaarden

Staying on the log cabin boat for a week or more? Then you can also sail on to the Biesbosch from Heusden

WEEK Departure Mon. or Fri. afternoon until Mon. or Fri. 10.00 uur.

Sailing routes

The Bommelerwaard sailing area entails the part of the river Meuse between Lith and Heusden. You are not allowed to moor on the Meuse. This is allowed in the many river branches and sand holes beside the Meuse: the Lithse Ham, the Zandmeren, the Gat van Sientje, the Alemse Gat, the Afgedamde Maas and the Neswaarden.

Staying on the log cabin boat for a week or more? Then you could possibly sail on to the Biesbosch.


Spend the night in nature

In the Bommelerwaard, nature gets all the space it needs. Along green banks, trees with their feet in the water are interspersed with grassland full of blooming flowers. In the Bommelerwaard, you can always find a beautiful nature spot where you can spend the night undisturbed, with waterbirds as your only neighbours!

On the natural beaches and grassy banks where there is enough open space, you are allowed to light a campfire, but always make sure you do this safely.

Visit the old fortified town of Heusden

About 3 hours of sailing from the boarding location is Heusden. This restored Brabant fortified town has a beautiful old centre and is well worth a visit. Moor the log cabin boat in the cosy city port. This way, you are right in the centre near the many restaurants and terraces. After a night out for dinner and drinks, you’ll be back on board in no time!

Tip: get a slice of freshly baked artisan bread the next morning at Bakkertje Deeg


Spot special animals

Of course, boating in the Bommelerwaard is super fun, but the experience becomes truly unforgettable when spotting wildlife. From your mooring spot, you can often take beautiful walks through the area. From your log cabin boat, spot the impressive Scottish highlanders and wild horses; several herds roam freely in the area.

The quiet moments at dusk are the best time to look for beavers and kingfishers. In the Alemse Gat, you can look for turtle Diego who only shows up occasionally. With a bit of luck, you’ll feast your eyes!

Experience true adventures!

Grab the SUP or canoe and have your own adventure in the many sand and gravel holes along the Meuse. (No canoeing or SUPping on the Meuse itself.) If you get hot from all that paddling, just plunge into the fresh water.

The Bommelerwaard has beautiful fishing spots for you to cast a line. You can then fish for typical freshwater fish such as pike, zander and bream, but catfish also swim around here.

De Linge

De Linge is best lang!

Wij hadden heerlijk weer op de Linge, in Leerdam het glasmuseum en de glasblazerij bezocht. De boot is knus en alles wat je nodig hebt, is aanwezig. De buitendouche is heerlijk en kan heel warm gezet.

De Linge is prachtig en ook best lang. Na 5 dagen had ik het riviertje van alle kanten bewonderd en was het gezellig terugkeren in Arkel

Tijdens het douchen kwamen er bevers voorbij gezwommen!

Heerlijke midweek in de Bommelerwaard met ons hondje!
Op prachtige plekken geslapen midden in de natuur.

Het varen is even wennen, maar goed te doen

Wat een geweldige midweek hebben wij gehad op de blokhutboot in de Bommelerwaard met ons gezin met 3 puberkinderen. Het varen is even wennen, maar met de goede instructies en de simpele bediening is dit heel goed te doen.

De Gouden Ham

Veel ijsvogels gespot

Wat een heerlijke week met de blokhutboot in het land van Maas en Waal.

De ontvangst door Burgi was geweldig en alles werd heel duidelijk uitgelegd!

We hebben heerlijke rustige plekjes gevonden en vele ijsvogels kunnen spotten

Nog even een aanrader als je van vogels spotten houdt, neem een verrekijker mee!



De Linge

Volgend jaar weer!

Vorige week gevaren op de Linge voor ons de mooiste locatie tot nu toe. Eerder hebben we Biesbosch en Bommelerwaard gedaan maar wij vonden dit de perfecte combinatie. Prachtige natuur maar toch ook genoeg dorpjes/stadjes.

We hebben genoten, volgend jaar weer, kan niet wachten.


Renske en haar familie


Thuis moesten we gewoon weer wennen aan de drukte

Wat hebben we onzettend genoten van een weekje relaxen met de blokhutboot in de Biesbosch. Juist doordat het niet al te warm was, was het er heerlijk rustig en konden we genieten van de mooie natuur. Weer thuis moesten we gewoon weer wennen aan alle drukte om ons heen. Een aanrader voor iedereen die van rust houdt.


Familie Kiekebos


Fantastisch concept!
